Whether fruity, creamy, chocolatey, nutty, or a combination, these no-bake vegan pies are cool, refreshing, and insanely delicious.So let’s get started, especially because these are incredibly easy to make as well.
Blueberry Cheesecake (shown at top) might just be the best cheesecake you’ve ever tasted. Rich with nuts and flavored with summer blueberries, you won’t believe that this is a raw, vegan dessert. Other than the 20 minutes of prep time, there are about 4 hours of freezing time.
Raspberry Lemon Mousse Tart, made with a nut crust of almonds, macadamia nuts, and shredded coconut, is astoundingly light and flavorful.
Raw Vegan Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream Cake is a summery dessert with everything you love about Creamsicles, but in cake form! While the presentation makes it look like you’ve been working on this dessert for days, it actually requires very little effort. Best of all, this orange creamsicle ice cream cake is vegan and raw.
Vanilla Pudding Pie Filling is perfect for a no-bake pie that sets up beautifully and becomes a luscious canvas for fresh fruit. Try it with berries in the summer; apples, pears, or tiny oranges in the fall or spring. Look for agar powder, a seaweed-based gelling agent, at any natural foods store.
Chocolate-Coated Key Lime-Coconut Creme Pie is a combination of coconut creme and key lime so the tangy lime has been tamed somewhat – feel free to up the amount of juice (reducing the other liquids to compensate) or add more lime zest. The hint of chocolate and the crunch of the toasted coconut and cacao nibs is a wonderful counterpart to the creaminess of the “custard.”
Jamocha Silk Pie blends chocolate with a hint of coffee. It’s easy and pretty enough to throw together for last-minute company. This takes only about 10 minutes to make, plus about 30 minutes to firm up in the freezer — if you can wait that long.
Vanilla and Raspberry Vegan Cheesecake is much lighter and fresher-tasting than a dairy cheesecake and the cashew topping is such a good medium for color and decoration. Even though it looks stunning as a whole cake, we sometimes make individual ones in a silicone muffin tray.
Buckeye Pie features a chocolate crust and is blanketed by a ganache topping. The silky peanut butter mousse at the center is creamy and luscious. The hardest part of this pie is making the crust (if indeed you’re making yours from scratch), so once it’s baked and ready to go, you’re more than halfway done!

Vegan Banana Coconut Cream Pie from Plant Craft is almost completely sweetened by the dates and the bananas alone, although you would never know it from the taste. The texture is perfect light and creamy, and no one would ever guess it’s actually healthy, vegan and raw.
